    • Google Malaysia has announced the grand winner of its second Doodle 4 Google competition, with 15-year-old Ch'ng Kai Wei's doodle taking the main prize ahead of three other age-group category winners.

      Her doodle will be uploaded to the Google Malaysia homepage on 16 September 2017, and will be available for all to see for 24 hours.

  • Her doodle, titled 'United, We Shine', illustrates the cultural diversity in Malaysia

    • "In my doodle, I demonstrated my understanding of Malaysia's diversity by including people from different ethnicities unique to Malaysia. However, I believe that Malaysia became the vibrant country that it is today because we are united as one regardless of race, colour, and ethnicity," the Nexus International School student said.

  • Four finalists from the four age categories were chosen by public voting from Malaysians, while the winner was determined by the official Google Doodle team out in Mountain View, California

    • The four category winners are:

      Age 7-9: Wan Muhammad Fahyin Bin Wan Mohd Nazdi of Sekolah Kebangsaan Kerteh, Terengganu
      Age 10-12: Cheng Jun Kai, SJK(C) Kong Min, Kuantan, Pahang
      Age 13-15: Ch'ng Kai Wei, Nexus International School Malaysia, Putrajaya
      Age 16-17: Muhammad Khairul Aiman Bin Mohamad Zaidi, SMK Bandar Baru Sentul, Kuala Lumpur

      The previous Doodle 4 Google winner was Lee Yee Run of SMJK(C) Yoke Kuan. His doodle featured a colourful rendition of the Kuala Lumpur Tower, Petronas Twin Towers, Penang Bridge, and the Jalur Gemilang.

  • Congrats, Kai Wei! We look forward to seeing your creation on Google's homepage next week! :D
